Ferguson (25-9 MMA) had entered the contest with hopes of snapping his five-fight losing skid. ‘El Cucuy’ had suffered a submission loss to Nate Diaz in his most previous effort back at UFC 279. The 39-year-old was looking to pick up his first victory since June of 2019, where he defeated Donald Cerrone by way of TKO.

Meanwhile, Bobby Green (30-14-1 MMA) was also looking to return to the win column when he took to the Octagon at tonight’s event in Salt Lake City. ‘King’ had previously competed back in April of this year, where his bout with Jared Gordon was ruled a no-contest due to an accidental clash of heads. Prior to that, the 36-year-old was coming off back-to-back knockout losses to Drew Dober and Islam Makhachev.

Tonight’s ‘Ferguson vs. Green’ bout resulted in a solid back and forth affair. Tony Ferguson was able to drop Bobby Green with a right hand in the opening round, but ‘King’ stormed back to dominate round two. In the late stages of the third and final round, Ferguson went for a takedown and ended up giving Green top position. From there, Bobby promptly locked up an arm triangle choke which eventually put Ferguson to sleep.
